Excellant tool
30 May 2015
By Kald

" This is a great and robust tool. I used it to take a wooden plank down by about 30mm. It was sharp and quick and gave an excellent finish. Easy to use with one hand. Easy to change blades. "

" Don't know what I would have done without this tool, have used it lots in planning doors to fit, now on my 8th door and the plane is still going strong. One of the best buy "

Stanley surform block plane
4 Sep 2013
By Rennie42
, Barrow in Furness,
" An absolute essential tool when working with plaster boards. So much easier to ' smooth ' the edges with the 'plane' than scraping it with a Stanley knife. I would recommend this item to everyone a great item and at a great price too. "

Did the job fine.
29 Jul 2015
By cheapandcheerful
, Staffordshire
" Bought this because it fits in the hand nicely and to trim the edge of a tongue and groove wooden gate that I'd already put up at the side of my house. Edge is only half inch thick.
With only one use so far and not knowing when I'll need it again or how long it will last, I'm not rating it as exceptional. But it certainly did what I wanted.

Small Surform
11 Jun 2015
By Boringoldman
, Birmingham
" Handy little tool, did the job I needed it for. I already have the larger version, so knew what to expect. The handle is not the strongest and I would go for the metal version if I needed it long term for trade use, having said that I dropped it from a fair height onto concrete and it survived intact. The blades can rust, but still work fine, a few strokes on an odd offcut will stop any rust stains on your work. "

Fine for plasterboard

By GKR007

" Bit cheap and nasty looking but it does the job fine for plasterboard edges. If you need a surform for quality joinery work then buy something better, horses for courses. "
